      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

QAD is the way to go in my opinion. Full containment drop away. Ripcord would be next on my list but I like the QAD better.

I love my ripcord. QAD is very nice too but the only thing that scares me from it was my cousin put one on his bow and it wouldnt drop down every time, and when it did the rest wouldnt fall fast enough so he was having fletch contact so he switched to the ripcord and didnt have any problems. Maybe it was just a bad rest because I havent heard of anyone else with that problem.

I have 2 trophy takers a limbdriver and a trophy ridge dropzone on my bows the only one I will not recommend is the drop zone their are a few design flaws where the arrow might not sit in the same place and play in the bar that raises the arrow

I planned on getting the trophy taker, but I went with the ripcord. I love it. When I got a new bow last year, I got another ripcord. Its been very reliable.

I've had a Vital Bowgear Kaz-away on my last two bows and I've really been happy with that rest.

Thanks gang. Will probably check out Ripcord and Quad. As for the W Biscuit, they work good but raise h*** on your fletchings.

The whisker bisquit was a good rest to learn on. Now it is the Ripcord all the way!

I started on a whisker but now moved onto a Trophy Ridge Dropaway. I wanted a drop away but wanted it enclosed but I do like the Trophy Ridge products

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
